In the third lesson of this tutorial on selling used music CDs on eBay, I discuss the process of researching your CDs to see if they are rare or otherwise valuable.
The four main pieces of information you will need to make this determination are the catalog number, the recording label, the release year, and the country of the recording's release. These items can be obtained from the CD itself, the back and/or edge of the CD case, and the paper insert.
Armed with this information, you will then turn to the internet to further your research. Your main online sources will include eBay itself, Discogs.com, the artist's official site, and fan sites or wikis.
